The ceramic tea bowl pictured is by Shohei Fujita, and is part of his “Pots on the Wall” exhibition, taking place at Shibuya Hikarie 8 (October 12 to November 3). I share it because, as a Bond fanatic, to me it looks like it was created for SPECTRE.
So here’s the second spy movie I see this year that is about losing trust from the people you work for, while you uncover an evil shadowy organization that is looking to destabilize the world. It really is eery how Rogue Nation follows the same basic blueprint as SPECTRE (and vice versa), but it didn’t affect how much I enjoyed the movie. It’s certainly one of the best in the series (along with the first one), and I absolutely loved Rebecca Ferguson’s role in it (and she, along with Alicia Vikander, have turned into my two new favorite actresses – funny how they both just happen to be Swedes). I still preferred SPECTRE, but that’s probably the Bond fanatic in me talking.
